BibleTime uses (used?) a cache for at least some of the data of modules. In
particular I know the keys of a dictionary module are cached at first
module load and only updated when the module's version number is changed. I
discovered this some time back while working on such a module which would
not reflect updates to the keys without bumping the version in the conf.

Of course, this type of behavior adapted to Scope is fine on a desktop or
even a netbook or most tablets. But it's unacceptable for a truly
low-powered device.
